Tim Miller says area being searched by Leonard Padilla was previously scanned with sonar and cleared by TES

November 10, 2008

leonardLeonard Padilla continues to search in the Little Econ River in Blanchard Park.  The divers he hired will work through the afternoon combing the football field sized area.  So far, nothing has been found, and he says whether they find Caylee or not a memorial service will take place tomorrow.

Tim Miller and Equusearch are finishing up their search today in the Lee Vista area.  Tim said they have cleared the areas of interest given to them by LE, and he has to move on to other families with missing children. He said that the search would continue–just on a smaller scale. “This tim-miller1search is far from over.” he stated. There are approximately 68 TES members in the Orlando area, and they will continue to search for Caylee on weekends.

Then, Tim said something I found very disheartening.  He said the river Leonard Padilla is searching has already been scanned by him PERSONALLY  with side scan sonar–equipment that he is very good with. “I know there is nothing in the water.” Tim said flatly. “If somebody wants to do something to put on a show, My God we’re not involved in it.”

He went on to say there are many people searching for Caylee for many reasons–a lot of them self-serving.  He said “I would only hope that the other search is for the right reasons and not just media attention. I hope they have the right motives. This is not a circus”

If what Tim says is true, and there’s no reason to think it isn’t,  Leonard Padilla must be aware that the area was scanned.  He either doesn’t trust the equipment, or he’s doing exactly what Tim is suggesting–pulling a publicity stunt.  I still think Leonard’s heart is in the right place.  I hope that’s not just my naivety showing.

    I don’t think it is a show for LP. I think LP’s heart is in the right place, also.

    I don’t think it’s for show. He is very emotionally involved with wanting to find Caylee. Maybe it makes him feel better to search it one more time.

    I think also LP’s heart is in the right place, but I don’t think she will be found unfortunately. There are so many places Casey could have dumped the body, in a dumpster at one of the numerous apartment complexes in the area, etc. And with all the rain from the hurricane’s earlier could not have helped if she did not put her in a dumpter, and God forbid she may have burned the baby’s body. The remaining bone fragments would be so tiny, they may never be found. I just hope LE has enough to send her evil MOther away for a long time, and I hope whomever is involved in anyway goes down as well.

    Maybe not a show but the entire cast of people involved is like the biggest cartoon ever made. Take Roger Rabbit, Porky Pig, Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, Donald Duck and lets not leave out Goofy and pinocchio. Put them in Orlando and we have a show, an interesting but very, very sad cartoon. Where does LP fit in, you decide, add some characters? The only one that has no place in this cartoon is Tim Miller, he just doesn’t fit, well, there may be some others. Who would Goofy be, you decide. Just maybe Tim would be Papa Smurf.

    I am keeping hope that they find Caylee. But there were times and I think ppl involved that who knows if Caylee’s body is even in FLA????

    Caylee please know that we have tried, they are still trying and everyone wants to bring you home.

    If LP is so wrong about searching the Econ River why did Cindy and George show up with Cindy flipping out, yelling, pushing reporters and their cameras, ripping sign off of Murts van, and calling Louis and threatening her? Sounds like they might be a little to close for the Anthonys to handle!

    I totally believe that Leonard Padilla has good intentions…by re-searching the river…(perhaps Caylee’s “remains” were not in the river at the time Equisearch checked…people have been known to move a body before…). As for the tree with the cross…I do believe that is definitely a memorial for Caylee. I also feel that if she is not in the river, she must be somewhere nearby!!! Is it possible for the team to use dogs to sniff out a trail using Casey’s scent…perhaps leading to the body? As police do when looking for a missing person? I just pray that little Caylee is found soon… God bless all of you who have never given up on her…Melinda from Maryland

    If the anthonys show up? its because their tried of padilla, attacking their family . and declaring she die there! after all he said 2000 his friends would show up for the search. he said if he got casey out of jail he would have caylee found in a week. he said the pings at air port would lead to the body. after all he is going to have to face nancy grace!

    Lynn at least he can face NG knowing he tried everything. He believed when getting Casey out that she would work with them. She didn’t she went on to tell lies to CPS while her mother sat there listening and not stopping her. I am sorry but that is wrong. I pray one day Caylee is found and given a proper burial. Maybe if the Anthonys would have been straight about everything in the beginning we would not be where we are now.

    Yeah, I vote for Leonard, too. I don’t believe he is a deliberate media-hound, I think he believes he’s helping. If he knows that Tim Miller searched before with the sonar device, he must think that device has limitations and actual people splashing around in the river may find something.

    I don’t know anything about sonar, myself. Does it take a picture, or just blip or what? If a body were all bundled up in a blanket, etc, and weighted down to lie on the bottom, would that be obvious? Or would it just look like another rock, or sandbar?

    Except that they just found a bag of bones and some childrens toys…. so it’s irrelevent if it’s a publicity stunt at this point… it yielded results. Apparently it wasn’t searched very well .. was it?

    Hi, you are right it was missed regardless. I thought for sure they had found her.Think about this, what if it is something and there is a cover up of some kind in the police department. Casey, had been with a few police offers in the past, what if??? Maybe Padilla should have some one else look at the suppose bones. Once they are gone and if it was her bones, well they would be gone. Padilla cares about Caylee and not the fame and he hates casey and wants her to get the fullest of what she really deserves. I think if anyone can bring Caylee home Padilla will and hope he does. I am glad Tim Miller has searched but he promises alot and then gets here and then leaves. Who cares if the anthony doesn’t want him searching for a dead Caylee. It is suppose to be about Caylee. Does not surprise me when George said, the stuff is probably planted.These people will say anything. If her body was found or her scull and they put a face on it, they would still dispute it. I think Padilla has made this personal, meaning he believed in casey and then when the forensic came out, he turned on her and he is out to get her and in the mean time he wants to bring Caylee home for what ever reason, if only to prove she is dead and Casey will pay. But he is not backing down and he will take a polygraph Gee know one else will!! Anthonys have tryed to run everyone off from looking and I think Padilla and the volunteers are thee only one left that is still searching. Thank God!!!

    Sonar devices don’t detect what is below the mud and Silt. Tim Miller Is Full of Crap.

    Do you know that for a fact Diablo? I’d be interested to know if it can’t detect things buried in the silt and mud.
